A garden club of only men, calling themselves The Garden Men, has asked Monique to give a lecture about the influence of her work on Sissinghurst. It was a very animated evening for a totally enthusiastic and interested public of men and their wives.
Monique’s first article ‘Working at Sissinghurst’ for the garden magazine TUINSeizoen is recently published.
From January onwards Monique is going to write a monthly article for the Dutch garden magazine TUINSeizoen.
Monique had an accidental encounter at the Charleston Garden Festival with an old resident of South Cottage. Recently, he visited Sissinghurst and provided useful, previously unknown, information about the garden.
The church warden of Sissinghurst’s neighbouring picturesque village of Biddenden has very generously opened the church doors to enable Monique to give talks to large groups.
Last week Monique visited Vita’s ancestor home Knole to investigate the resemblances with the Sissinghurst gardens and courts. And there were many!
